The Wolrd Health Organisation (WHO) has said that it was concerned with Zimbabwe’s health crisis following the industrial action of health caregivers in pubic health institutions.
These remarks were said by WHO country representative, Dr Alex Gasasira who said that he was hopeful that the government and workers would find the best way to solve the impasse.
Speaking to ZBC News, Gasasira said:
We were very concerned and very happy that there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel.
We have been having several discussions and the issue of the health workforce was a big issue.
The government and workers have not been agreeing on the way forward with the latter rejecting a number of offers by the government saying that the offers were too insignificant considering that the economy is inflationary.
Meanwhile, Econet founder, Strive Masiyiwa, through his Higherlife Foundation announced a package which resulted in some workers returning back to work.
